The reason I say this is because I can hear a louder spooling sound at certain revs, around 2,500 to 4,500 rpm, during acceleration and I can hear something spooling down on deceleration :confused: I've been reading around about uppipe leak... How...
  5. turbo on its way out???

    Problem Diagnosis
    hey guys... had the turbo removed to check for shaft play... it seemed ok but when the shop used a air compressor to spin the wheel.. we saw the compressor wheel spinning in a circle... meaning it wasn't spinning dead center... So, I replaced it with a 16g that I was supposed to change when all...

  13. turbo on its way out???

    Problem Diagnosis
    Hi Strider! Based on logs using enginuity, my car is boosting at the right levels. Actually, even my butt dyno tells me my car still "feels" strong when I have a go at it. Though, here is something funny. On the dyno, the numbers are down and my boost on the dyno is down as well.
  14. turbo on its way out???

    Problem Diagnosis
    Hey guys! What are the signs that I can notice if my turbo is on its way out??? I'm asking cause ever since I went on a fun run with some fellow subarus...
